Hobbyzone Super Cub Scratch Build

With more than a little fantastic guidance and encouragement from NoFlyZone (THANKS Chuck!) I've finally managed to build and maiden fly my scratch built Super Cub. She's a little tail heavy, so I need to tweak the battery placement, and obviously she needs paint, but WOW, what a difference ailerons, LiPo, brushless, and my shiny new DX7 make!

What a nice job!

I really like your idea of making that foam plug to dress up the servo pockets. And the ailerons look very nicely made!

I'm so happy that everything worked out great, and you had a very nice maiden with it too!

Keep up the great work...

Your going to love that plane. I did the same. Its fun to float in with flaps. I found that on only 30 percent flap was sufficient.
I also modded the wing I shortened it by 8 inches and took the dihedral out and it tracks fast and straight, tolerates the wind well and you can almost fly the IMAC basic with it. Lands just as easy with the flaps. I also run a 2100 3S with the 480 and a 12x6 prop. Dial in some differential almost rolls axially, knife edges with alot of power.
